About Thigh Lift Surgery

Losing weight is a huge triumph for any individual. However, men and women who achieve their weight loss goals sometimes need one extra step to complete their physical transformation. Depending on how long you were overweight and how much weight you lost, sagging skin may be a separate issue if the skin was not able to adapt to the new size and shape of your body. The thighs are particularly an area of concern for many patients. Arlington, VA plastic surgeon Dr. Talal Munasifi offers thigh lift surgery (known as thighplasty) at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, which trims away excess skin on the inner and outer thighs to create a tighter, more contoured appearance. This surgery has risen in popularity because it offers natural results for patients battling loose skin on the thighs.

Surgical Technique

During a thigh lift, general anesthesia is typically used. An incision is made near the top of the thigh in the natural crease where the thigh meets the torso. This incision usually extends down to the midway point of the thigh area. This allows enough room to use liposuction (if needed) to remove isolated pockets of fat as well as to trim away all loose skin at the top of the thigh area. The remaining skin will be pulled upward so it can be tightened and safely secured with sutures. In some cases, an incision may be necessary in the outer thigh area or underneath the buttocks, depending on the amount of tissue being removed. This surgery at Advanced Plastic Surgery Center reshapes the entire thigh area, leaving a shapelier, tighter, more contoured appearance.

What to Expect

Thighplasty takes about 2 – 3 hours to complete. Once the surgery is over, you will be monitored and then sent home to recover. There is commonly discomfort, bruising, and swelling associated with the immediate recovery. Within a few days, most patients are up and slowly walking around, which is necessary for circulation and healthy healing. The overall recovery period typically takes about 6 – 8 weeks. At-home wound care provided by Dr. Munasifi will help the incision to heal properly. Even though there will be some scarring, the new shape and contour of your thighs will help you regain your self-confidence, and you can display your legs with pride.
